Dear [insert contact name]:

The [insert local bar association name] is conducting the “There Ought To Be A Law” Essay
Contest in celebration of Law Day [year] and we need your help. We invite you to join us to
make this a community initiative and to help recognize our student participants.

The essay contest, developed by the Ohio State Bar Association, asks students in grades 7
through 12 to write an essay identifying what they believe “ought to be a law.” The students
are asked to generate an idea for a new law and provide reasons why that particular law
should be enacted, taking into account its impact on the community. Additionally, volunteer
lawyers will lead interactive classroom discussions to guide students through the lawmaking

This essay contest provides a great opportunity for your organization to support local students
in their efforts to become knowledgeable citizens. We believe that all of the participating
students deserve to be recognized in some way, even if their essays are not considered for
regional and state competition. [OR: We would like to be able to recognize this student
(these students) - at the local level.]

We hope that you will consider hosting a recognition reception (OR: making a contribution
for a prize such as a U.S. Savings Bond or a gift certificate). As a sponsor, [insert
organization name] would be recognized in all of the information disseminated about our
local contest.

I will follow up with you shortly to answer any questions you may have. If you wish, please
take a moment to indicate that you will help to sponsor this contest by calling me at [insert
local phone number] or by returning the enclosed response form.
